In light of tumblr now no longer allowing “adult content” (like nsfw art/pictures) will pillowfort still allow nsfw content as long as it is properly marked? Because that decision has pretty much destroyed my already little faith in tumblr.



Yes, we plan to allow NSFW content with very few restrictions. I don’t have any particular insight into why Tumblr is making this decision but if I had to guess, it’s because allowing NSFW content conflicts with their need for the site to be marketable and safe for advertisers– Pillowfort on the other hand plans to derive most of its revenue from user subscriptions, meaning that we will be beholden to our actual userbase and not outside advertisers and can therefore have more leeway in what we can host.

This appears to be the front runner to replace Tumblr.

It’s got the cutest name so I think it will win.

Currently in beta so $5 kickstarter pledge to sign up, will be free after full launch.

Um, the claim that it’ll be free after launch is directly contradicted by their statement that they plan to make their money from user subscriptions.
